I agree with most of my fellow commenters that this book is slower-paced than most of its companions, but it is also necessary to lead into the rest of the books. The humor, in my opinion, more than makes up for the lack of constant action, and those who do not value sarcastic commentary should really consider another series. A sarcastic creature at heart, I enjoyed this book immensely, and recommend it to book-lovers who can truly appreciate John Flanagan's wit, rather than to fiction-action-junkies.
